Different for everyone, depending on what you want. For me this is not what I wanted in a college experience so I disliked it.
Hollins provided a supportive environment to explore any and all interests from academic to extracurricular. Great community feel on campus. Vibrant students who care about the world. Beautiful campus with excellent facilities. Great dance department with opportunity to perform. Short term and foreign study a real plus!
